Premium Matcha Powder from a Family Farm in Shizuoka
This culinary grade matcha powder is made from the highest quality green tea leaves and is grown and processed by a family-owned farm in Shizuoka, Japan. It has a rich vegetal fragrance, vibrant green color, smooth texture, and delicate aftertaste. Matcha has been used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony for centuries and is now enjoyed by people all over the world for its delicious taste and health benefits.
Ceremonial Matcha is the highest grade matcha green tea powder and the most vibrant match green tea in color. The youngest green tea leaves are picked and when the stems and veins have been removed, it is then stone-ground, and typically consumed straight or with very little water.
Culinary Matcha, however, is the most common standard of matcha green tea powder as it is used for cooking and baking. Culinary matcha is prepared differently, it has a more robust body and is often less sweet.
Modern Matcha: What is the difference between Ceremonial Matcha and Culinary Matcha?
Matcha is divided into two different grades, Culinary Matcha and Ceremonial Matcha. Factors that determine the grade of the matcha powder include the following:
The color of the matcha tea
The texture, quality, and density of the matcha tea
The quality of the product – is the matcha tea from the stem or is the matcha tea from the leaves?
The fineness of the matcha powder
Whether there has been any prolonged exposure to oxygen
How the matcha was ground up
Treatment of the matcha prior to processing
